Engaging Entrepreneurial Spirit

Kessler Fellows is an entrepreneurship program rooted in the College of Engineering. The program is open to juniors studying a STEM-related field that have a strong interest in entrepreneurship. Students will engage in a semester-long immersion aimed to help them cultivate their entrepreneurial readiness before their summer experience with a startup. 

Eligibility and Selection

Juniors studying a STEM-related field that have an interest in entrepreneurship are encouraged to apply. 

Program Funding

Through the generosity of Andrew J. Kessler '80 EE, Fellows receive a weekly stipend during their summer internship and travel costs will be covered. 

Student Commitment

The program involves a one-credit course during the spring semester, one-on-one time with an Entrepreneur-in-Residence, and a presentation at the conclusion of their summer experience.

“ Academics are important. I wanted to get out there and do real things. Getting involved with start-ups is not the typical route, but it was what I needed to do."

We aspire to be the premier donor-supported undergraduate entrepreneurship program. Students are drawn to our one-of-a-kind immersion to deeply engage in personal discovery and 'drive their own bus' through every phase of the year-long experience.
